    Chris Matthews going nuts is nothing new. I have a friend who won an argument with him.

    The Abu Ghriab can no more be blamed on Bush than the Peterson murder. Drop it!

    I wonder how much Moveon.org paid USA Today for this?

    If the right contained as many hackers as the Kazaa crowd, that web site would be down more often than not. The RIAA started manipulating the market, then getting all ticked that people found a way around it and their web site was down for over a month. These guys lie and spread propoganda faster than they could spread the flu. They mudslingers, bomb-throwers, and liars. The fact that they are allowed to have a web site is a great testament to the extent to which first ammendment freedoms are protected and a to the extent to which the left is willing to revoke that right in the name of Kerry's 4 1/2 months in Vietnam.

    Ok, so it's the LA Times, they are still supposed to be a newspaper! Not a mouthpiece for Kerry. Note the difference between time for 'Kerry remarks and analysis and that for Bush!

    Ok, I torture myself, now onto the NYT. What used to be the STANDARD of reporting, it's sad:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2004/08/20/politics/campaign/20swift.html?th

    When you see Bush family and Karl Rove in the same sentence, you just KNOW something bad is brewing, right?
    The use of ["] strategically place has been a device of Reuters, then AP, now the NYT has picked up on it. Notice how one title is in quotations and the other isn't?
    That's about 1/2 of the first page of a 5 page article. We have a rehash of what has been going on in the blogs for several weeks-though no credit is given; well after all, this is the NYTimes! We have politics of personal destruction-big time. We have Douglas Brinkley, formerly a highly thought of Presidential Historian: http://www.weeklystandard.com/Content/Public/Articles/000/000/004/476jwkqo.asp

    Once Kerry started to "defend himself" yesterday, the media became involved in an all out push...

    In response to your initial post, Kathianne. Yes, I started to watch Matthews since John Kasich was subbing for O’Reilly. Matthews was boiling mad when he was “interviewing” (haranguing would be a more descriptive word) Thurlow and would hardly let Thurlow get a word in to answer his questions. Matthews wanted Thurlow to say only what Matthews wanted him to say, and that was crystal clear. Talk about limiting free speech!!! When they were talking about sKerry’s “Plan”, of course Matthews didn’t bring up the topic of sKerry taking a camcorder and re-enacting his Vietnam service for the camera. If you don’t think the liberals in the media are campaigning for sKerry, all you had to do was watch Matthews on his program last night. Mud can be slung at Bush until it completely covers him, and no one in the media says a word about the hate and bias involved; but let one speck of mud fly at sKerry, and all hell breaks loose about how unfair, untrue, and biased it all is. I think the majority of Americans are smart enough and intelligent enough to know what is going on and are not buying into it.

    Though I have always known that Chris Matthews (aka. Dog Leash Boy) is a liberal, he, at times, has been somewhat fair in the past. However, his hatred for President Bush and his feeling that their boy Kerry is losing have pushed him into the Gore Asylum. Concerning his interrogation of the Swifties and Michelle Malkin- even throwing her off after one segment when she had been booked for TWO- I have NEVER, NEVER, EVER seen a more disgraceful act of crazed partisan behavior. Seeing that Michelle is too refined to play his bully/scream game, there is, in my opinion, only one person who could take him on & beat him at his own game: Ann Coulter, someone whom I bet he is too scared to debate- I know you guys might have other names, but all of those other people bring their own behavior limits & restrictions.

    Chris is like a rabid dog, biting & snarling. He has COMPLETELY lost it and has exposed himself & his ilk in the LMM as Kerry operatives/Bush haters. He makes up lies about how WE are saying that Kerry shot himself three times, a claim that has ONLY been made by HIM, Dog Leash Boy. He asks a question, then shouts down the individual.................

    Something I find to be a particularly liberal trick!


    So let's move on. Speaking of "move on," Chris.............

    He never attacks the tens of millions which Soros has given to MoveOn.org. He NEVER grills Kerry thugs about the Hamburgler and his pernicious, filthy, Goebbels-type Nazi propaganda in his mockumentary. He never attacks all the slurs hurled at President Bush by fringe wackjobs who compare him to Hitler, even going so far as to claim that President Bush was in on 9/11- can we say "Howard Dean?" He likes to talk about the 7 minutes used by President Bush to keep a calm appearance, but refuses to discuss that Kerry admitted that he just sat in a room, frozen & unable to even THINK for FORTY MINUTES. Instead of defending Kerry by screaming that Kerry wasn't president, perhaps he should make the point: "God, if Kerry, a mere senator, was that frozen with fear for forty minutes, how long would he have been locked in fear if he had the responsibility of Commander in Chief."

    Still, fellow Republicans, cheer up........

    It is obvious that these charges are both true AND that they are landing body blows to Kerry. After the next round of ads and the Sunday shows- except Matthews' liberal roundtable- it is very possible that a strong uppercut to the chin- Kerry's very LARGE chin- could be landed. If Kerry weren't a traitor, had a non-radical senate record on which to run, and didn't change his mind every three days, he would not have had to run on his roughly 129 days in Nam. Now, running scared, Kerry thugs are trying to get Regnery to stop printing the book, "Unfit for Command," and have book stores pull it.

    Gee, when does the Nazi book burning party start at the DNC?

    All of this means one thing: WE ARE GOING TO WIN!

    I just heard Michele Malkin on Rush, and they played the interview of her and Mathews........He was horrible to her. They tossed her off the show, and then kept her copy of the book Unfit For Command, and was thumbing through it to see if what Mathew said was correct..... I thought I was hearing things........ He would not let her get a word in. I hope there is a big back lash from all of this...Even Keith Olberman called Michele an Idiot..........Total meltdown by the press
